Absolutely charmingly decorated cafe with wonderful creative food offerings. Specials offered daily. The service is great, food is an amazing crafting of flavors and styles. Presentation is lovely. Portions are more than ample. All of this in an ambience or whimsical art creations by the owner and other local Homer artists. Makes you want to smile through your whole meal.

We were totally blown away by the food at Cafe Cups. We simply did not expect to find such outstanding foods in Homer, a small town at the end of the Kenai Peninsula. We liked it so much we returned the next night. The dishes are interesting and very well prepared. The service is friendly and the decor unique.

I know I'm in the minority here, but Cafe Cups was a disappointment. It started with the cold and standoffish service by the woman at the bar who poured our wine while waiting for our table, and continued after we were seated. The food was mediocre at best. I had the lamb chops and they were tough and overcooked, even... More

This place was so unique and impressive. The wait staff was very knowledgable and accommodating to our special meal requests. The homemade Rosemary bread is one that I will be longing for until next time I return to Homer!!

Cafe Cups has been around forever and is consistently a quality, excellent dinner. The dining room is sometimes a little cramped when busy, but the staff is EXCEPTIONAL and the place runs like a well-oiled machine. I've never had a bad meal there. The "schpeal deal" that lists the specials is always a delight to listen to, and my most... More

We're in the midst of a 4 night stay in Homer. Sort of a bucket list trip. The owner of the Homer Inn and Spa, Paul, suggested we try Cafe Cups. We thought the food was outstanding. Jennifer, the owner, also had very nice wine selections. We started with fresh oysters on the half shell which were actually very fresh... More

The food was not bad, but way overpriced. Our waitress was painfully loud. The building is an icon in Homer, and certainly interesting.

So happy to have found this place in Homer. After having a few bad meals in Alaska we were worried we were never going to have a good one. The food in the portion size blew us away. The atmosphere was very unique and had a lot of character. Try the specials they were amazing.
